BBC One has released the first trailer for the highly anticipated adaptation of Malorie Blackman’s cult YA book series, ‘Noughts and Crosses’, featuring music supervision by Major Tom and score by the prolific producer and composer Matthew Herbert.
This six part dystopian TV series for BBC 1, takes place in an alternate 21st-century Britain in which whites and blacks are segregated following centuries in which Africans had a technological and infrastructural superiority over Europeans who they made their slaves. The series will chart the forbidden love story between ‘Cross’ Sephy, a member of the black ruling class and daughter of a prominent politician, and ‘Nought’ Callum, a white member of the underclass.
'Noughts and Crosses' will air on BBC One at 9pm on Thursday 5th March 2020.
